Fort Williams 2

Posted by Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 18 October 2012 in Architecture.

As you can see, this building is falling apart. I liked how I could see through it.
I value your comments.

This view seems to give the building such strong presence despite the lack of repair . .

The views through the ruins are like windows - and seem to remind us that nature eventually reclaims all.

I'm sorry when I see somehow historical buildings in decay. Your photo should be a warning to all in charge of not letting this happen.

I think those cracked stones are the least of its problems - very nice details

Very attractive stone work in this fine shot. I like the composition and the way we can see through the building.

A wonderful detail of the facade, the colors are beautiful. Lot of work to restore, but it would be a good idea. Great shot.

I like your capture, but the lack of level is a bit troublesome. The tilting lintel of the inner window in the lower half could be your level point. (My husband accuses me of having a 'bubble' in my eyeballs, that goes 'tilt'.) <grin>

18 Oct 2012 6:32pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: I am afraid I like tilt. I enjoy shooting things from an angle. To me it adds to the beauty of things. Level can be boring to me. WHile I appreciate you wanting it to be level, it was intentionally not level.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

I like all the different textures of the rock. I like seeing through the window. I have always thought that old buildings are amazing like that!

Regrettable deterioration of this beautiful old ... That looks like a relic of yesteryear. Good point of view with good texture, color and light. Greetings.

Such a shame it's falling apart, Nature has no respect!

Oiva from Turku, Finland

It is a pity when you break down some of the buildings and no one doing anything to preserve them. Many of the buildings are full of the history that is lost when it is destroyed!Beautiful shot!:-))haleja.

Good day, my friend!

Sorry, Ruthie ... I'll need to make a mental note when the 'pit' of my stomach does a 'flip flop' ;D
